• Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin or Quan Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion, who having attained enlightenment is said to have chosen to stay in the mortal world instead of ascending to Nirvana in order to help others achieve the same, and she is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia. Her name in Chinese roughly translates to “The One who Hears the Cries of the World”. Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokitesvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese Goddess of Compassion. As a Bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and she will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.
• Cloisonne is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects. Chinese cloisonne is amongst the best known enamel cloisonne in the world. Cloisonne enamel objects are worked on with enamel powder made into a paste, which then needs to be fired over and over in a kiln. In most of Chinese cloisonnes, blue is usually the predominant colour, and the Chinese name jingtailan (“Jingtai blue ware”) refers to the colour and the Jingtai Emperor. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments to the metal object by soldering or affixing silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors. The enamels compositions and the pigments change with time.
